I Peter 5:8

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (NASB)

God is teaching us, through the inspired pen of Peter, that we have a very cunning and stealth adversary in spiritual matters. The devil, is “on the prowl” trying to get those who are with God to sin. Satan wishes to destroy our faith, our devotion to God, our lives, and our eternal destiny!

Ephesians 6 teaches that we are in a spiritual battle! We can win, with the Lord’s help and by committing to Him. Be watchful for the LION, he is after your soul.
